Reading Endorsement

The Department of Middle/Secondary Education and Instructional Technology and the Department of Educational Psychology, Special Education, and Communication Disorders – offer graduate courses in literacy which apply to Georgia’s Reading Endorsement for classroom teachers. These courses focus on three areas (a) understanding readers and the reading process, (b) linking assessment and instruction, and (c) using instructional strategies in specific content areas.

Successful completion of the three courses and the portfolio qualifies a person for the bachelor’s, master’s, or specialist level endorsement, depending on the current level of certification. This endorsement qualifies an individual to be considered ‘in field’ in reading at the level of the base certificate. Teachers pursuing the reading endorsement may be enrolled as non-degree students or may be enrolled in specific programs.
